Completed: June 2013
This project was commissioned by some one who makes cakes and caters events. they needed something that could hold a lot of cupcakes and cake pops while also having the flexibility to handle cakes. Most of all it needed to be portable, having the ability to break down into a small and manageable size for transporting from event to event. These are the kinds of projects that I live for, the kind that make you think. My turning skills were not great then but I did what I could do with the column sections and put a threaded insert in one end and a hanger bolt in the other. There is also a tenon on each end which helps with stability. Since the stand was to be used with cakes as well as cake pops and cupcakes, I drilled holes in one side of each disk and left one side smooth. This turned out very well and the owner found it very useful.
